here. >> that's what they're saying. san jose attributing the recent string of accidents to the recent time change. we all fell back, turning the clocks back one hour, which means it's getting darker a whole lot earlier. in fact, it's 5:00 in the morning now. it's just about this dark at 5:00 at night now. if it weren't for the lights set up for me here on the expressway, i would be an extremely vulnerable pedestrian or bike rider to the traffic zooming by me right near 101. according to mercury news, there have been four serious crashes during the evening rush hour. in the three workdays since the time change. in the past five days, three people, either a pedestrian or bike rider was hit and killed. just last night before 7:00, a 44-year-old san jose man was hit while riding his bike on fully near galveston.
he is in the hospital with potentially life threatening injuries. now the cause of the accident is under investigation, but police say the driver is cooperating with them. alcohol or drug don't seem to be a factor. on saturday night a 20-year-old woman was walking to the mall in south san jose when she was hit and killed about 8:00. the drivers in that crash are cooperating with police. in fact no arrests have been made in all the crashes no. charges have been filed. police are certainly taking time to remind us on the roads, pedestrians, bike riders, drivers to pay attention because of the recent time change. they say if you're going to go for the easy run or ride your bike home from work, hop on the skateboard, it's very important to wear reflective gears so driverscan see. >> be careful yourself. looks like the cars are close.

haven't moved at all. at this point @ university saying they don't want tents out here. one officer said they know it's illegal. but they're going to standby and monitor the situation students are telling us they'll have a general assembly meeting later today at 5:00 or 6:00 and decide what they'll do next. but they are planning to ask for a general strike in the higher public education system coming up for next tuesday. >> christi, we'll continue to cover the story. everything is peaceful now. >> san jose state students plan to camp out on campus tonight. the school says it's okay with this one. students will sleep out in tents to dramatize the fact that more than 186,000 people in santa clara county live in poverty. organizers say students will decorate tents with pictures of

the core to stay offshore. this front will come through. the south end of the peninsula will get the most moisture as the area of low pressure will move south just a touch. 67 in fremont. we're looking at the hour-by-hour forecast for rainfall. we'll tell you when it arrives coming up. first let's check to mike about your drive. >> we watch the construction clearing in the next few minutes in palo alto, this one also at east 94. that's a typical overnight project there. that's 68 off "l" street. that will change to half the speed over the next half hour. we'll check that volume of traffic as well. we'll get a live look to see how things are moving for oakland. from here to fruitvale, there's

control. clear skies over the bay area. two systems are trying to get in. the system to the south is trying to sneak in. we have a major cutoff low to impact auz us there tomorrow. everything i'm looking at leads me to believe it will stay onshore. 67 in fremont and 70 in san jose today. so actually a little bit warmer than our seasonal averages for this time of year. now a take a look at that low, really picked up a lot of moisture overnight. and what we're expecting is for the actual core to stay offshore. however, it will bring in a few bands of pretty significant rainfall, especially to the coastline. that means we could see coastal flooding, and it looks like the timing of this is going to be right during the morning rush tomorrow. mike inouye will be here to track this for you. let me show you what's to come. 3:00 a.m. on friday. you see the yellows and reds embedded in the green. that's heavy and moderate rain slated to impact the coastline

they said, quote, i would wow have expected the committee would want to review those documents, including, 1,100 pages. . the documents due today would include thousands upon thousands of memos realitying to the president's travel or even the fuelling of air force i because they have the word solyndra in them relating to the president's slit visit to the plant. e-mails show the white house and major solyndra investor george kaiser did talk about solyndra.
on the face of it, that's a mistruth. republicans accuse him of pushing the administration into a another loan for solyndra, which it didn't. the white house was caught not doing something wrong but not telling the truth. still to come. a fugitive on the run after murdering a bay area police officer gets ready to turn himself in. >> imagine having to fight for millions or dollars you believe is yours. many cities here in the bay area are in the fight. it could be your town. we'll have the story coming up. about 24 hours away from heavy rain in parts of the bay area. we have the weekend forecast ready to go. i've been tracking a full i'osure for the peninsula. i'll give you the latest for highway 1 coming up.

let's them raid the accounts to pad the budget. one of the cities most vocal about keeping the redevelopment money. if the justices agree with the cities like san jose, this could blow a $1.7 billion hole in the state's budget, right sfl. >> yeah, which wouldn't be helpful given the current financial crisis. good morning, jon. before the massive budget debt sacramento each year used to send cities like san jose millions of dollars for redevelopment. money used to revitalize neighborhoods, build affordable homes. but the state pulled the blug on that this summer because of the kusht financial crisis. so today a group representing redevelopment agencies will go before california's stream court to ask for reinstatements of the funds, arguing it's uninstitutional for lawmakers to hold back the money. in july the governors and legislatures dissolved the 400 redevelopment agencies and diverted the $1.7 billion from
property taxes into schools and other programs. bigger priorities in the eyes of sacramento given the current crisis. the state is already facing a deficit of $5 to $8 billion. having to return to $1.7 billion would add to that. the redevelopment agencies can get a second life if they agree of the give back another $400 million down the road. the redevelopment agencies argue by taking way their money they violated proposition 22. voters passed prop 22 last november to specifically prevent sacramento from raiding the treasuries of local government. pro poents of prop 22 argue that the state should be happy to fund local redevelopment. the projects create jobs to create new income tax, more money from the state, and an opportunity for california to get closer into the black.
the same pipeline responsible for the massive san bruno explosion is the same pipeline that runs under a school's soccer field. that's between sierra vista and middlefield road. but removing a portion of line 109 from the school's field and rerouting it through the campus parking lot and under middle iv field road. they will not remove line 132 because of the cost. going to have to do research and think twice about coming over here. it's a school. there's kids everywhere. pg&e says line 132 is safe. it's the same pressure testing that ruptured the line over the
weekend, shutting down 280. members of the morgan hill community are expressing their concern at an increase in gang violence. a town hall style meeting was held last night. the new concern was sparked by a friday night drive-by shooting that left a 14-year-old girl dead and two others injured. many people that spoke agree police and community leaders need to do more to keep kids out of trouble. >> there needs to be one night a week to come out and enjoy each other. maybe show their musical talent. maybe speak on something. maybe do poetry. maybe something like that and cater to them. maybe that's the place they can be at. instead of in the dark. >> it have five men police say shot and killed the 14-year-old faced a judge yesterday. they are being held in and out without bail. if convicted the men face life
in prison without parole. >> it is 5:35. a deadly week for pedestrians in san jose is prompting police to remind motorists to drive carefully as the sunsets earlier. marla tellez is live with ak loot after what happened. good morning. >> laura, good morning. police say it's because of what we all did over the weekend. we turned our clocks back an hour. so it's getting darker earlier. this makes everybody more vulnerable on the road. just last night a 44-year-old san jose man was riding his bike near galveston when he was hit. how he's fighting for his life in the hospital this morning. police say the cause is under investigation, but so far it doesn't seem the driver was impaired in any way. also about the same time the america renews reports a 67-year-old woman was in a crosswalk in east san jose when
she was hit. she ended up dying last night. over the weekend, a 20-year-old was hit and killed in south san jose. she was walking to the mall saturday night. three people have been killed in san jose in just the past five days. we need to get used to this. if you're going to prun in the evening or ride your bike home, it's very important to wear reflective gears. after 40 years on the run from the law, a bay area fugitive ready to turn himself in. ronald stanley is expected to surrender this morning. he's wanted in connection with the murders of police sergeant john young. his lawyers says bridgeforth
will only plead guilty to the shootout and insist that his client is innocent in the officer's death. >> it is time to check in with meteorologist christina loren with a look at the forecast for today. >> good morning to you. it's a cold start. we're going to see sunshine for the first part of the day. clouds increasing as a cut-off low is closer to us. capable of producing significant rainfall at the coast. especially areas to the south of ma rin county as we wake up tomorrow morning we'll be in the thick of it. we have mostly clear skies overhead. we picked up a few clouds yesterday. high clouds snuck into the bay area. ma makes for warmer conditions. three to five degrees warmer than this time yesterday. take a look at what's head this way. this is just not moving. however, through the next 24 hours we are expecting it to take a turn. not only to the south, but to the east. enough so to where this band of moisture sits over the coast.
potentially and dumps rain on us. that's what we're watching for. 70 in san jose. 68 in san francisco. a lot of sunshine coming in early will make for uniform temps like we saw yesterday. so tomorrow we could be dealing with thunderstorms in addition to heavy rainfall. we have your hour by hour forecast coming up in the next report in addition to your seven day. we'll tell you what the weekend holds first. le find out what the drive is like. >> eastbound highway 4. that's reopened. we had closure at love ridge. rb not clear. it's slow to love ridge because of your morning commute. speeds less than half of 30 minutes ago. unusual slowing northbound. this is unexpected. a look outside shows you what's

commuters when it comes to stop and go traffic. tracie potts is live in washington with all the details. good morning, tracie. >> good morning, jon. if you live in the bay area you know about the stop and go traffic. san francisco commuters spend an extra 50 hours a year tuck in traffic. now researchers think the extra fumes may be affecting the brains. 7500 women in 2200 states. a big study. they found the fumes affect our mental capacity, intelligence, emotional stability. they could hurt brain cells, affecting learning and memory. what they don't know is how much of a lasting effect it will have. there's a lot of unanswered questions. plus it may be complicated by stress, diet, exercise. it is worrisome.
especially coupled with the fact there's other research out there by columbia harvard, other organizations that seems to support the idea that jeans are altered by what's coming out of your tail pipe. they found that for infant an elderly as well. this is this is certainly not definitive. something to keep in mind while you're idling. >> tracie potts, thank you for the report. coming up this morning, an exclusive interview with conrad murray. they talk with the former personal physician of michael jackson about the night he died. >> don't you bear responsibility? the propofol is in the room because you prescribed it to hi him. >> when i met michael it was a situation where it was long
before i got there. >> but own your portion of it. were you right to leave him in a situation where he had the opportunity to inject himself. >> well, i'm going to say, that was not the situation. >> it wasn't? >> no, no. had i known what i knew today in retrospect, mr. jackson was an addict and share that had information with me, you may consider it. you just said he was a desperate man. you left him alone with propofol. >> he was asleep. >> the interview airs in two parts today and tomorrow on the "today show." meteorologist christina loren is back with us. get ready for the friday drive. the rain is coming. >> the rain is coming. but this forecast is difficult. there's a slight chance we won't
see any rain whatsoever. i'm going to show you why now. temperatures are running cool. 34 in santa rosa. you're at 37 in livermore. 35 in gilroy. we are going to see significant rain. we almost had a traffic collision here in the studio. six-inch heels. this is a very juicy system. this area of low pressure actually broke off from the jet stream. so we call it a caught-off low. now the jet stream is what transports our storm system from west to east across the u.s. so this thing has nowhere to go, nothing to carry it. there's for now. high pressure will move in throughout the next 48 hours. it's going to nudge it enough to this the east for us to potentially see really heavy rainfall at the coast. enjoy what we have for you for the time being. it will be nice and stable.
71 in los gatos. 67 in santa cruz. oakland is comfortable. 68 for you today. as we head through the next 24 hours, that area of low pressure might just sit and spin. and not even make its way on shore. however, i do believe it will. i've seen this before. as you can see here, it cuts off from the jet stream. the jet stream continues to move to the east. but this low stays right here. as i said before, nothing to move it inland. so what i'm forecasting is as we wake up at 6:00 a.m., periods of rain at the coast. inland, you may not get much. but we'll see upwards of half an inch because we top the future cast at 3:00 a.m. that should move in between 6:00 and 10:00. heavy rain is projected at the coast. that's what we'll watch for you tomorrow morning. 65 for your friday. spotty showers continue through saturday and sunday. we'll see very light astivity.
this one is not packing much moisture at all. tomorrow's storm you really need to stay aware of the forecast for. mike, let's check the drive now. >> you've been warned about tomorrow. i also told you about something unusual here. much better commute through the walnut creek interchange. we have your 16-minute travel time. typical slowing heading into livermore. the south bay, we'll look at this. these speed sensors all marked in the northbound direction. is smooth drive to the peninsula where we look at the travel time. other side of the bay, a live look at oakland. 880 past the coliseum.

. >> commerce, education and the -- um, uh. let's see. i can't. >> on the the toip of his tongue. perry later said it was the energy department that slipped his mind. after the debate he talked to reporters about the fumble. >> yeah, it was embarrassing. of course, it was. but here's what's more important. people understand that our principles, our conservative principles are what matter, not that in a litany of agencies with need to get rid of. >> perry will not back out any future debates. next one happened saturday in south carolina. >> the numbers are not final, but they're good enough for mr. ed lee. he's declared himself the next mayor of san francisco. little more than 32,000 votes left to count.
it appears he's right with 61% of the vote. in the district attorney's race, george is on top with 64% when you count rank choice voting. ross appears to be the city's next sheriff. he has nearly 53% of that final tally. >> and veteran days approaches. a happy welcome home for bay area soldiers. welcome home. eight members of the california national guard arrived home from iraq yesterday. members of the warriors watch who know what it's like to come home from the airport the greet the soldiers. >> we're vietnam veterans. we didn't get a good greeting on our way back home. we want to show these guys that we appreciate what they do. they got support. the only time it was hard was when there was incoming rockets when he's talking to me. and it's, i got to go, bye.
